20m. Start 3m right of Bella Lugosi below a triangular niche at 8m. Climb directly up and into the niche. Make a hard move to start up this. Continue up and right on small holds to the lower off.

Lovely climb, the good holds always seemed out of reach requiring delicate intermediary moves. One bolt of the lower off could be wiggled quite a bit

JoeCoxson 11/Oct Lead O/S

The 3 bolts are just enough to keep you on edge through a lot of the climbing, but the moves are good. Lower off has a dodgy bolt mind, thankfully the resin staple is sound.

A good warm up route. Does feel a bit like a sports route the bolts are quite spaced. I think its E1 if you can reach the holds E2 if you can't reach the holds.

Misha 21/Jun Lead O/S

One of those sporty sport routes. Other than a small wire low down, unprotected to the first bolt but fairly straightforward. After that it's not that hard (some easy 5b) and the tricky moves are next to or not far above the first and second bolts. Got a comedy micro in the triangular groove before stepping up to clip the second bolt. Couple of number 1ish nuts available next to the third bolt so used them, it's easy above anyway.

Lead after Misha, bolts clipped and one micro in place, hence lead beta. Hilariously bolted!

Pete_Frost 19/Jun Lead O/S

No gear below the first bolt. Climbing out of the niche is technical but safe. WARNING: the screw-in lower-off bolt is loose in it's hole and needs replacing. We backed-up the solid glue-in bolt with a nearby ash tree instead.

The second bolt position isn't that bad/alarming - just adds a bit of exposure, so a trad grade is probably more apt.
